A celebration of Britain’s diverse housing styles throughout the twentieth century and beyond.
Showcasing 100 houses from the twentieth century, this book provides a fascinating insight into Britain’s built heritage and how the architectural styles of the time adapted dramatically to urban life. From specially commissioned architect-design houses to housing built for increased workforces, each of the 100 houses brings a different design style or historical story. Architectural styles featured range from mock Tudor and Arts and Crafts to modernism and brutalism. Accompanying each entry are texts written by leading architectural critics and historians, including Gavin Stamp, Elain Harwood, Barnabas Calder, Ellis Woodman, and Gillian Darley.
